Sean Penn to Direct 'The Comedian'

Sean Penn to Direct 'The Comedian' with Robert De Niro & Kristen Wiig


Aside form his turns in comedies like Meet the Parents and Analyze This, back in 1983, Robert De Niro actually portrayed a comedian in Martin Scorsese's film The King of Comedy. Now the actor is taking another role as a comic with Deadline having a report on The Comedian, just one of many projects that will emerge from next week's American Film Market.
